Middle Mountain "Song Zhong" Dan Cong Oolong Tea * Spring 2017
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
Phoenix Village is the home the to original four surviving "Song Zhong" trees that have been growing there since the Song Dynasty. Song Zhong is a naturally occuring hybrid of Shui Xian (grown in the Wu Yi Mountains). Song Zhong is often called "Sweet Potato Dan Cong" and has a sweet nectar like taste.
Our Middle Mountain Song Zhong is from 50 year old trees growing naturally next to the Feng Xi Reservoir at about 700 meters altitude
While not as premium as our Single Tree "Song Zhong" Dan Cong Oolong Tea this is an incredibly high quality Dan Cong in the "less than $1 per gram" price range. Creamy, vegetal, thick, complex and long-lasting this would be a good addition to lovers of serious Dan Cong Oolong.
